Verizon customers are getting an extra big gift next month in the form of unlimited Skype calling over 3G connections.

A few months ago AT&T got pressured into allowing VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls over its 3G network, and now Verizon is following suit.  Users will be able to make unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls, Skype Out calls, instant messaging, text messages and more beginning in March whenever they have a 3G connection to the Verizon network.

At launch, nine phones will be supported:

  • BlackBerry Storm 9530
  • BlackBerry Storm2 9550
  • BlackBerry Curve 8330
  • BlackBerry Curve 8530
  • BlackBerry 8830 World Edition
  • BlackBerry Tour 9630
  • DROID by Motorola
  • DROID ERIS HTC
  • Motorola DEVOUR

More phones are expected to be added at a later date, but no time line was given.

The benefit to this is that these calls will not be deducted from your calling minutes each month, and only requires a data plan, which all of these phones already come with.

With AT&T and Verizon locked in an all out war with each other right now, the users are the ones that are benefiting.  Hopefully Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile will follow suit.
